Good afternoon all,

I am taking my family from the 7th for a week to Sedgefield.
I have tried contacting Hookers in town, but to no avail as the landline does not exist and the mobile goes onto voice mail.

I will primarily be doing lure fishing in the lagoon as we are staying close to the lagoon. Target species would be grunter and leeries.
Is the mouth still closed, and due to no tidal movement, where is the best and safest places to fish?

I would dearly appreciate your input.

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to all.

Kind regards,
Pierre

Thanks DJP,

Not sure whether it is good or bad? Now the fish will be moving with the tide.

Should be better though, will just have to find the fish.

Is it open to the extend that there is tidal movement?

Looked pretty strong, but this is second hand news, you can let us know when you arrive tomorrow.
Mouth open is always good IMO. Fish for leeries on the dropping to low tide and grunters on the push to high. It pays to fish around first light and the again around sunset, so you will have to decide whether having a braai in the evening or getting up early is more of a priority, good luck!!!
